The pop singer’s career has been at a standstill since 2014 when she first filed suit against Dr. Luke, her producer, for alleged sexual, emotional and physical abuse. She has suits against him in California and New York, while he, along with her record label, are counter-suing.
On Monday it was reported that she would be dropping most of her claims in the California case. She will continue to appeal the claims in New York, where, in February, a judge denied her attempt to terminate her contract with Dr. Luke. She has not been allowed to work with any other producers because of this contract. The case in California has been on hold since last year with the judge there stating that there was little chance that the hold would be lifted.
On Monday, Ke$ha gave her record label 28 new songs; she funded the recording of these songs out of her own pocket, finding a compromise for her paradoxical situation.
In April, she appeared with EDM master Zedd to perform one of his songs: True Colors. The song, about standing up for oneself no matter what, and the rare public appearance, gave fans and supporters hope for Ke$ha’s future. The singer is reportedly hoping a new single and album will be released in the near future.
